Northumberland residents have been asked to send photographs of Storm Arwen to collect for an archive.

Northumberland Archives, a sector of Northumberland County Council, have asked residents to send photos of storm Arwen.

A spokesperson for Northumberland Archives said: "Northumberland Archives mission is to collect records relating to all aspects of the history of our county.

"Our oldest record dates from 1158 but it is just as important to collect information about current events.

"Storm Arwen has had a huge impact on our county and we are keen to capture this information for future generations.

"Especially as the last time we can remember chaos like it was the storm in 1987, and we know that today will be a day of taking stock and carrying out maintenance for so many.

A spokesperson of Northumberland County Council reinstates why archives are important, they said: "Archive records provide a valuable historical resource for a wide range of people and here in Northumberland we place great importance on their maintenance and accessibility.

“Events like Storm Arwen have a massive impact on people’s lives and a photographic record can demonstrate that impact more powerfully than words.

“In Northumberland there has been a fantastic response to this ongoing incident from individuals and communities across our county, and photographs help to document their contribution as well as demonstrating the magnitude of it.”
